Team Sky sets the standard in Besançon

Team Sky earned the top two places on the Stage 9 podium with Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome powering past the earlier benchmark set by Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack-Nissan).

Reigning World Champion Tony Martin was not at his best, still carrying a broken wrist and so it was Cancellara whose time stood. In-form Sylvain Chavanel (Omega Pharma-Lotto) got close, and Tejay Van Garderen (BMC) closer still before the GC's big hitters came out to play.
